Head Held High

My mama told me,

Ever since I was seven,

Hold your head up high.

My parents told my

Ever since I was eleven,

"Hold your head up high."

They said the answer

Was to become a dancer,

Hold your head high.

Oh, just like I figured,

They're always disfigured

With their heads up high.

Now I'm older,

I'm getting so much bolder

With my head up high

Oh, as I figured,

Just like I figured

Since your head's up high, baby.

Oh, just like I figured,

You know, they was disfigured

Hold your head up high.

You know, they says the answer

Was to become a dancer

Hold your head high, boy.

Ever since I was a baby

On my mama's knee,

Oh, just listened to what

Everybody told me,

Oh yes I did.

But still the answer

Was to become a dancer,

And hold your head high,

But, just like I figured,

They're always disfigured,

They hold their heads up high,

Watch out!

Do the dog! Oh, watch out!

And now I'm older,

They say I'm so much bolder

Got your head up high.

Oh, and the answer was,

Hey, to become a dancer,

Head up high.

Well, but just like I figured,

They're always disfigured

They got their heads up high.

But the answer was, now,

Boy, to become a dancer

With your head up high

Head up high,

Head up high
